like the way in tomb raider how she just automatically goes behind cover when near object, instead of having to press a button. or in uncharted how he automatically crouches behind someone when going for a stealth kill, or in assassins creed the way they took away the A button for jumping.
Kinda just makes it feel less like your playing a game and more like your watching a movie. what do you guys think?

now? what? in old final fantasy games you only control the character through a menu, that really didnt give you a lot of control over your characters, you couldnt even move them in battle

I actually feel like games are going in a different direction. I feel like games are trying much harder to create an immersion experience and give you control. Recent games that come to mind as The Walking Dead, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, or Spec Ops: The Line. Those games seem to give a lot of power to the player. I get what you're saying from a gameplay standpoint, but I like to think of those simple controls as a way to create convince and smoother controls. Drake crouches automatically because most games are that way, and your character in Assassin's Creed jumps automatically to create a smooth free running effect. That's just my opinion, though.
